Playing with Metal

This is my first attempt using my new stash from Ten Second Studio, bought a book and decided this time to actually follow the instructions, rather that just go off on a tangent and wonder why its all gone wrong. I am really pleased with this sign I have made for my craft area, had a bit of a problem with the puffing, as once I did that all the detail had disappeared, so had to re do the detail, which didn't help with the look of the puffing, but for a first go I am really pleased. I think my house might soon be covered in my metal effect work, LOL.

Bought all my stash from LB Crafts, a lovely shop full of loverley craftey stuff, aah bliss,

think I have managed a link, will I never stop amazing myself., have to edit as I ahvent amazed myself, link isnt there, boo hoo, try going to lbcrafts.co.uk, LOL

This metal stuff is amazing, LOVE what you have done with it! I know Santa is going to bring me some, can't wait to start after seeing this.
Thanks for the kind comments you left on my blog, - you asked about faux leather technique, - dead easy, just crumple some tissue cover in PVA glue and let dry overnight. Colour it any way you like, i used distress inks on mine.
Take care

Lol, glad I'm not the only one who doesn't read the instructions first (I'm the same with recipes, nearly always miss a vital step or ingredient!) Love this project.
